The 100 km team time trial was held on
Sunday July 26 and followed a course
which started and finished at the Circuit
de Catalunya, which is usually used for car
or motorcycle races in Montmeló, 20 km
from Barcelona. The course is 4,747 m
long, the minimum width is 11 m and the
minimum radius of the curves is 31.5 m.
The cyclists started by circuiting the
course which has a maximum gradient of
2.2% and then they followed the A-17
motorway and the Avinguda Meridiana
into Barcelona. They then returned to the
course to complete another circuit and to
complete the 100 km the teams returned
again to the centre of Barcelona by the
same route and cycled back to complete a
third and final circuit of the course.
The most important work financed by
COOB'92 was the widening and paving of
the route which connects the circuit track
with the access road. The expansion joints
on the motorway bridges were also
temporarily sealed.
